Who can supervise scaffold erection?
The operative in charge of the direct supervision of the working foreman, leading hand and other members of a scaffolding gang must meet the minimum requirement of CISRS Scaffolder grade. Supervision of more complex scaffold structures required a CISRS Advanced Scaffolder qualification. In addition, the supervision of a scaffolding site or project including deploying operatives, H&S issues, liaising with the client, inspecting, and so on, must be carried out by a competent person. However, the individual may not be required to hold a CISRS qualification.
